 IRNA – The sixth court hearing for Daesh terrorists involved in the June 2017 twin attacks in Iran was held in Tehran Monday .

The trial is underway at Branch 15 of Tehran’s Revolutionary Court.

Two terrorist attacks were simultaneously carried out by Daesh terrorists who targeted the Iranian Parliament building and the Mausoleum of late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, both in Tehran, on 7 June 2017, leaving 17 civilians dead and 43 others wounded.

The attack on the parliament happened when at least four gunmen, disguised as women, entered the visitors’ hall of the building, opening fire on the security guards there. According to an Interior Ministry statement, the terrorists were all killed before they could make it to the administrative building of the parliament.

Separately, gunmen attacked the Imam Khomeini Mausoleum in Tehran, opening fire on people inside and wounding a number of them.
